This German cottage quartz cuckoo clock accurately keeps time and plays 12 different melodies. This clock features a deer, water pump, and tree on the base. Two decorative pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by two chains. The pendulum swings back and forth. On every hour the cuckoo bird emerges from a swinging door above the clock dial and counts the hour by cuckooing once per hour. (Example: At one o'clock the bird will cuckoo once. At eight o'clock the bird will cuckoo eight times). After the cuckoo bird cuckoos one of 12 different melodies will play. 1. Happy Wanderer 2. Edelweiss 3. Dr. Zhivago 4. Swan Lake 5. He was beautiful (theme song of the movie "Deer Hunter) 6. Lorelei 7. Home sweet Home 8. Sound of Silence 9. Clementine 10. The Entertainer (theme song of the movie "Sting) 11. Love theme of the movie "The Godfather" 12. Fur Elise This cuckoo clock has volume control and a silent mode. *Great effort has been made to portray each cuckoo clock as accurately as possible. As with many handmade items, the exact coloration and carving may vary slightly from clock to clock. We consider this to be a special part of their character.
